That the motion be amended by deleting all the words after the word “That” and substituting the following:

“this House not approve the budgetary policy of this government because it will: ( a) increase unemployment and fail to stem growing inequality; (b) cut promised health transfers to the provinces; (c) unilaterally download billions of dollars of costs onto provinces, territories and municipalities; (d) needlessly increase the age of eligibility for the OAS and GIS for future retirees, many of whom will be forced into poverty; (e) decrease protection of our environment; (f) cut vital public services to Canadians; (g) undermine Canada’s reputation on the world stage; (h) attack support for our culture and heritage, including CBC/Radio-Canada; and (i) unfairly use the Canada Revenue Agency to attack charities for ideological reasons.”.
